I am 73 years old, and have a severe gag reflex that makes it almost impossible to wear dentures; i have a certain amount of bottom teeth, but they are constantly hitting my top gums; giving me blisters and lots of discomfort. My question is- Can i protect my top bare gums please? And how?
Thank you. Mr. G.Williams

You either have to consider a horseshoe-shaped upper denture with lots of adhesive, or look into implants.
